Based on a historical event from 1757, this book represents the ultimate adventure novel: one man, alone, struggling to survive in a dangerous and inhospitable environment. Shipwrecked 17-year-old sailor Allan Gordon demonstrates all of the characteristics necessary to survive his Arctic nightmare – luck, perseverance, adaptability, and hope. This is a gem of a novel that is short, sweet and does an excellent job of outlining the triumphs and tribulations of one man — who eventually makes it out of his isolation through a combination of willpower and sheer ingenuity.
